I sent the link from Tantumblogo’s “A cry from the heart…” to several folks and got this response to the group:
“Since I was included in this e-mail, I’ll briefly respond: “Tantum” had the opportunity at any time to pick up the phone & call Michael Voris or speak with this so-called “funder” — both of whose contact information he has — but never chose to do so, so we question the sincerity of this “cry of the heart.”
His article is inaccurate, whether it’s about this “funder” (there is no “funder”), or the Vortex stats (all our content is aired on Vimeo, and stats show Vortex, Mic’d Up & our other content is more popular than ever), and no one at our apostolate, publicly OR privately, has ever “bashed” the Pope, so we reject his charge that there’s a double standard. One can express legitimate concerns about the Holy Father privately — as any faithful Catholic may do — without choosing to publicize his every misstep and scandalize the faithful.
